How to check drivers

Recommended Posts


​   I'm new to Mac OS and I've just been installing Hackintosh 10.10 on a HP dv5-1110el.

Everything's working but the network cards.


These're the hardware specs:

Chipset: Intel PM45 express Ich9-m
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T9400, 2.53 GHz, 6MB cache L2, FSB 1066 MHz
Hard disks: Fujitsu 2.5" 250gb SATA 5400 rpm
RAM: 2x2048 MB DDR2 800 MHz (PC2-6400)
Display: 15.4" WXGA (1280 x 800) HP Infinity BrightView
Video card: NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT ddr2, 512MB dedicati, 1791MB condivisi
Audio: IDT 92hd72b7 on 828011b ich9 compatibile 3D Sound Blaster Pro a 16-bit
Wi-Fi: Intel WiFi Link 5100AGN

Ethernet: LAN Realtek 8168C Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000


About the Intel Wi-Fi Link 5100AGN I see on many posts there's nothing to do, but about LAN Realtek 8168C Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 I've been trying drivers included in Multibeast, then some other drivers for the 8168 with Kextbeast, nothing to do.


Being a newbe I don't know exactly how to manage with kext files.



Now that I have more kexts installed, how can I know which one is actually in use for the ethernet card?


Any other suggestions?



Thanks a lot and best regards

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?
    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
